Wikiloops has the power to inspire the home-musician to learn something new... Besides the improving playing skills and art of inter-istrument communication, most of all feel the need to have a great sound on our recordings...

Before I found you all, I did not use to record my music often... I just have kept ideas for future work, dont knowing when I will work on it...

However, the cooperation on remixes needed some portion of recording skills... After many years I started to use my old dynamic mics, which I soon found insufficient in many occasions...

2 days ago I was recording a [url=http://www.wikiloops.com/backingtrack-jam-16702.php]country theme with my guitalele[/url] and I wanted to sound it nice... I was trying to do it as good as I could, though I did some mistakes... I placed a mic exactly opposite soundhole... tried some "magic" with EQ, compression and reverb... and 2 days after I hear, that I should not did many of those things...

So I started to seek information on microphone placing, recording levels, equalisation etc...

As I consider many of information found on different websites interesting for all of us, I decided to start this new thread of interesting recommendations, settings, tips, hints, tutorials, etc...
